    Definition of Disk Volumes -> Shared memory on a Linux system

    jhshen

      On my SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 (64-bit) system, under:

       

      Disk Volumes, there's a value Shared memory that is set at 100%. I believe that value is /dev/shm/ and it has plenty of free memory.
      Can somebody explain the definition of that value is?

      Also, I know there are other threads about incorrect polling for memory utilization, such as this one:

      Poller shows incorrect memory utilization (UNIX and Linux) - SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. Help and Support

       

      But attempting to follow these instructions, I'm having some confusion:

       

      1. Select poller type (memory in this case).
      2. Click Detect Pollers.
      3. Right-click the supported pollers and complete a Poll now.

       

      The only part I see Pollers is in Management -> Pollers and there's also a Poll Now. But pressing Poll Now doesn't change the results.
